Top 5 Funny Thoughts While Unpacking Summer Clothes
Clothes for the Summer Season
There is a revolving door that involves my clothes and my (never big enough) closet. Every fall, I pack away my summer clothes into a large Rubbermaid tote as my closet is not big enough for my entire wardrobe. Then, when spring comes the following year, I unpack the container and fill it with my fall and winter gear. It’s a process.
Here are some random thoughts I have while looking at my summer clothes as I unpack them from the tote.
Seriously, I Wore That Last Year?
Yes, uh huh. I unpack my orange t-shirt with the flower on the front. My initial thought is, “Seriously, I wore that last year?”
I think back to the picnic last summer when I showed up in the t-shirt that I now think is just too bright and likely made me look like a pumpkin.
Funny, I thought I rocked the outfit that day!
I Swear This Shirt Was Longer Last Summer
Yes, I am sure that some of my shirts shrunk while they were stored inside the Rubbermaid tote for six months. I try on the black t-shirt again. It barely falls to my waist. Really? I wore it last summer and I’m sure it fit fine then! I remember it being longer.
Maybe someone snuck into my closet and did a warm wash of my clothing while I was out one day. Or, perhaps my torso grew longer over the course of the year?!
Okay, So Why Am I Keeping This Tie-Dye Shirt Again?
The tie-dye shirt that I’ve had for over five years goes in and out of the tote each year. Unpack and repack. I haven’t worn it in a few years now but I still can’t bring myself to donate it along with my other items. Why is that? So why exactly am I keeping this tie-dye shirt again?! Hey, maybe it will come back in style next year!
Dang It! I Thought For Sure I Would Fit Into These Pants by Now!
Here lays on my bed the white Capri pants that I could not wear last year.
I try them on and, yes, this is summer number two that I now can not fit into them. I think of the chocolate bar last night and I have no regrets. Maybe next summer they will fit! Back into the tote they go, again.
Bathing Suit Season Is Here Again, Now Where Did I Put That Bikini?
Sometimes I can’t find items in the tote. This year I realized that my bikini was actually in the drawer of my bedroom dresser rather than stored in the container. I suppose I had good reason to keep it out, but I can’t remember why exactly!
What are your thoughts when you look at your summer wardrobe?
Are you secretly wishing you could swap out some pieces of clothing for newer versions? Do you identify with any of these thoughts of mine? Feel free to share your own thoughts!
